This past weekend my parents sent me home with a ton of fresh tomatoes from their garden. As I was thinking about what delicious recipes I could make with all of these tomatoes I immediately thought of salsa! What better recipe to make with all of these ripe tomatoes? 🙂 My family loves to eat chips and salsa and this is one recipe that I seem to make once a week at my house. Besides this homemade red salsa,  I have made two types of salsa over the summer- peach and apple salsa and peach and pepper salsa. My husband and I love hot and spicy dishes, however, if hot and spicy are not your thing, simply seed the jalapeno before mincing.
